FAQs

How many family members can be covered with the Family Travel Insurance policy?

Up to two adults (aged 22+) and 10 children (under 22) can be covered by our family policy.

What if a family member has a medical condition?

That is not a problem, part of the online quote process is a medical declaration for all travellers on the policy, this will ask you certain medical questions and ascertain whether a screening needs to be completed. If you do need to declare conditions for a member of the family, the quote system will guide you through the process, but you can also contact us if you have any questions.

Is it worth buying an annual family travel insurance policy?

If you’re planning to travel more than once or twice in the next 12 months, then a Multi Trip (sometimes known as Annual) policy may be more cost effective for you.

Do you have to travel with the rest of the family to be covered on the insurance policy?

If you purchase a Multi Trip policy, not only do we cover your family trips, but anyone over 18 is also covered to travel independently from the rest of the family.

Tips for Travelling with Kids

As joyous as it is to travel across the world with your family, spending time with the kids does often mean extra levels of care and attention are required. Follow some of our tips to ensure your family holiday is the best it can be.

1.Prepare yourself for the climate

Make sure you’re aware of roughly what conditions will be like before you head out. Packing for the climate can save you both a lot of space in your luggage and cash (for new clothes) when you’re actually at your destination.

It’s simple enough to find out what the weather will be like. There are a number of online resources which provide you with the chance to find out what the weather in a certain place will be as far as months in advance.

2.Make the most of apps

The modern tech-heavy world has brought with it new opportunities to keep your child safe. There are a number of apps which are able to keep you informed of where they are at all times, with the simple use of a tracking device.

You’ll also be able to use your tablet to provide them with hours of distracting entertainment. From video games to movies, these serve as the perfect way to keep the little ones entertained at all times.

3.Make a travel checklist

Before you travel, be sure to have a precise checklist in order. This will ensure when you arrive at your destination you (shouldn’t) have left anything behind. Even if you’re someone who generally has a good memory, it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your holidays.

Be sure to ask your children if there’s anything specific they want to bring along. It’s all well and good coming up with your own list, but if you neglect something precious to your child you could end up in their bad books for the whole trip.

4.Bring travel games

If you need something to distract the little ones with, but aren’t a fan of introducing them to the tech world just yet, you can always turn to simplistic travel games. These offer the chance to provide a little peace and quiet, and serve as a handy way of catching a break from the dreaded “are we nearly there yet?” questions.

These can vary from something as simple as hangman (drawn out on a piece of paper), to more elaborate games which require an actual board and rules. Whatever you opt for, make sure your kids are happy with the choice. They’re the ones who’ll be using it most, after all.

5.Carry healthy snacks

Keeping nutrition levels high is difficult when you’re off on your travels. The best way to ensure your children are getting what they need is by carrying healthy snacks with you at all times on your journey.

The easiest and most practical way of doing this is with the likes of small tubs of fruit and veg. In some places, you won’t be able to freely transport food, so be sure to read up on this ahead of your travel.

 

Be sure to keep these handy tips in mind when you next head away with your family. They could make all the difference.
